Summary0007024: Horizontal drag movement threshold is specified in audio frames instead of pixels.
DescriptionThis means that the drag movement threshold really only works when zoomed right in. For instance the Region movement drag threshold is 4 frames. So this is 4 pixels at 1 frame per pixel, 2 pixels at 2 frames per pixels etc, so only noticeable at the 2 lowest zoom levels.

I'm not sure if this was what was intended, it seems to me that having a consistent drag threshold at all zoom levels is far more useful and predictable. For this to happen the horizontal drag threshold should be pixel based rather than frame based.

I have a patch to implement this but thought it could use some discussion first in case there is a good reason for the current behaviour.
